Since Australians basically come from all over the world, I really can't see how the author of this survey could come to such a conclusion. And I just can't see how Australia could be behind Japan.
sourceAustralian men make the worst husbands in the world because they loathe helping out with the housework, a British study claims.
An economist from Oxford University found that women wanting to settle down were better off finding a bloke from Scandinavia, the United States or Britain than Australia.
Study author Dr Almudena Sevilla-Sanz said that based on her study of 12 developed countries, men and women were both more likely to cohabit or marry if they believed their partner would help out with the household chores and childcare.
But it appears that when it comes to finding a husband willing to help out, Australian women have a tough time.
Dr Sevilla-Sanz's study ranked Australia as the least egalitarian society, making its men unattractive marriage partners because they were more unlikely to do household chores.
Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, the US and Northern Ireland were judged to be the most egalitarian countries, making their men the most attractive marriage partners.
Next were the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Austria and Australia in last place.
